Skoda has globally unveiled the fourth-generation Fabia hatchback. Compared to the previous generation, it has grown bigger in size, offers new engine/transmission options and is equipped with more safety features. While the second-gen Fabia was on sale in India, Skoda skipped the third-gen model.

The Fabia flaunts a completely new design which is sportier and in line with newer Skodas like the Octavia. There’s the traditional Skoda butterfly grille, sharper LED headlamps, mesh air intake grille, wraparound LED tail lamps, and new alloy wheels ranging from 14 inches to 18 inches. The sharp creases and upright stance make it look quite dominating. 

The refreshed cabin looks equally premium, with copper inserts and stitching. The first thing you might notice is the two-spoke steering wheel, which is getting common in Skoda cars. Other interior bits include a 10.25-inch fully digital instrument cluster, a free-standing 9.2-inch touchscreen infotainment system and large circular AC vents.
